    Hi everyone. Summer 1 will be my last semester of pre-reqs. I am currently taking, A&P 1, Dev Psych, and a Chem lab. I am getting ready to take the entrance exams at two schools both of which supposedly have openings for fall 04 semesters. Wish me luck, as I wish all of you!!!

    The hardest part seems to be finding a school with openings in the actual nursing program. Is anyone else having this problem? I live in the South Jersey/Philly area and almost all of the ADN programs have a long waiting list.

    Wow, a chem lab but no lecture? How did you manage that?

    Hopefully this will be my last semester of pre-reqs too... No, that's not right. I have two PE type classes I'll have to take summer term I.

    Good luck! I'm so glad we don't have to do an entrance exam! I get test anxiety like you wouldn't believe!

    I've only applied to one school, but they don't keep a waiting list from year to year - you have to reapply every year, so if you have the stats - you get in.

    I took the chem class last semester. Unfortunately, they only have two lab classes each semester. Initially, I was scheduled to take them together but there was a glitch in the computer, translation, someone f'd up, and I was stuck with this arrangement.

    How lucky you are not having to take the entrance exam. Honestly, I think it is another way for the school to milk money out of me. I have busted my butt to maintain a 3.75 GPA because I was told it had some bearing on acceptance into our program....apparently that is not the case.

    Lots of Luck!!!

    When do your actual nursing courses start? If I get in, I think we start doing basic CNA type stuff in July/summer II term, this get down to the nitty gritty starting in the fall.

    Good luck! Sounds like a fun semester - I loved micro, and am really sort of a computer nerd. I once considered majoring in computer science, but figured that was a bad idea.


    i will start september 2004!!!! i am enjoying my semester so far i actually really like all my classes and because of that i dont mind the tremendous amount of reading. the only class i really dont care for is computers becuase it is a basic class to teach people how to use microsoft word, excell, and internet use. i am a computer dork so i am usually really, really bored in the class but i will surf the net while in class and things like that

    Hello to everyone,

    I am fairly new to this site, and I love it. I am finishing the last of my pre-req's this semester: Micro, Devel. Psy, and Cult Ant. I am currently going for the Associate's RN, but will go right into the BSN online when I am finished. Also, I am married with 3 children, ages 11, 8 and 3. Whew! I work full-time nights as an Ob-tech/surg tech. It works out, I am used to it by now. All I can say is "it's all about time management people!" SG

    I am already in my BSN program (second semester) but I'm part-time so I will probably graduate in 2006.
    I have three boys: 22mos, 4yrs, and 6yrs.
